Girl Scouts around the World
Natalie Robb, great granddaughter of Sirkka and Olavi Tastula
of Fitchburg, represented Finland at a Westminster Girl Scout
Juniors, Troop 64651, event held at the Westminster Senior
Center on June 8, 2019.
The Scouts were working for their “Bronze Award project
to promote cultural diversity and knowledge”.
In addition to Finland, France, Italy, Mexico, Poland,
Puerto Rico and Scotland were represented.
Natalie wore the costume of Etela-Pohjanma, the region
of Finland from where many in this area emigrated.
She created a display accompanied by Finnish music playing.
She talked about and answered questions concerning all the
wonderful things she discovered about the land
of her great grandparents.
Natalie also baked and served pannukakku (oven pancake)
for visitors to her display:
